Product Description


Please note: This yeast is designed to be used with the T500 or Super Reflux Still and should not be used with the Air Still.

Classic Turbo Yeast is ideally suited to use with the T500 or Super Reflux Still for producing brown spirits (Rum, Whisky or Brandy).

Classic is also the best selling Tubo Yeast world-wide, performing excellently under most conditions. It's fast, capable of fermenting 6kg of sugar in 36 hours. It can reach strengths of 18% ABV when 8kg of sugar is used and has excellent temperature tollerance.

Still Spirits Classic Turbo Yeast has been further improved with the inclusion of new mineral absorbents for improved distillate quality.

As with all Turbo Yeasts, Classic further benefits from being used with Turbo Carbon.


  1. Decide upon the quantity of sugar to use (see chart) — do not use more than 7kg (15lb 7oz) if the air temperature is above 25°C (77°F).
  2. Prepare water making sure you end up with 21 litres (4.6 gallons) at the correct water temperature (see chart).
  3. Add the sugar and stir until completely disolved.
  4. Add the yeast and stir well. Rest the lid loosely on the fermenter (or use an airlock).
  5. Leave to ferment – 20°C (68°F) is ideal. Do not exceed chart temperature, or fermentation will stick. If using a hydrometer; a final gravity of 990 is possible if the air temperature has been correct.

Turbo Carbon

Turbo Carbon is specifically designed for use during fermentation. The unique activate internal pore structure removes impurities not taken out by post distillation filtration. It is essential for use with Triple Distilled Turbo yeast and will significantly improve all Turbo Yeasts.

Continue to filter after distillation choosing from the range of Still Spirits activated carbon filter roducts.


Always use Turbo Clear after fermentation to remove solids before distillation. If Turbo Clear is not used, the impurities trapped by Turbo Carbon will be released during the boil.


  1. Before opening, massage the sachet to ensure it is lump free.
  2. Add immediately after adding your choice of Turbo Yeast.
  3. Stir well to disperse.

Tip: Use a steriliser cleaner solution to clean carbon residue from your fermenter after use.

Turbo Clear

Still Spirits Turbo Clear 24hr clearing comes with both part A and B complete

Turbo Clear should always be used to clear your wash before distillation. Within 24 hours of use, 95% of yeast cells, solids and other unwanted by-products are removed from your wash.


  • Finings A: Once fermentation is complete, stir wash vigorously to remove all the gas. Once degassed add the contents of Finings A, stir well to mix and leave to stand for one hour.
  • Finings B: After one hour stir the wash very gently and add Finings B whilst stirring. Stop stirring as soon as all the Finigs B has been added. Do not stir vigorously as this will distrupt the clearing process. Leave to stand for 24 hours before carefully removing the clear wash for distilling.

Free Shipping

Postage is free for all orders over £46 (Including V.A.T.) to all parts of Mainland UK. This excludes the Isle of Wight, The Isles of Scilly, The Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands. The Channel Islands and all other offshore destinations are also excluded from our free delivery offer. Orders to any of these excluded destinations will be quoted by our system, but may be subject to change at any time.

Scottish Highlands & Islands

Regrettably we are forced to pass on courier charges for some parts of Scotland and the Isles.

This is due to the way the couriers structure their networks and is unavoidable. Whilst larger retailers such as Amazon may offer flat rate shipping nationwide due to economies of scale, we are unable to do so.

We prefer to remain transparent with regards to shipping costs and endeavour to offer the best possible rates in these cases.

Dispatch & Next Day Services

Our aim is to send out the same day all orders received by 9am. Sometimes due to a heavy influx of orders (especially over weekends) we may need an extra day to do this. Orders will be dispatched such that you should receive them the next working day by courier (excluding Saturday and Sunday) or by 1st class post (this is not a guarantee, as no UK parcel carrier offers a 100% guarantee on their service). On the rare occasions where we may be let down, or if there is a problem with the order we will notify you.

Delivery Times

In most cases, Mainland UK delivery is by a 24 hour, next working day service on DPD or TNT. Orders to areas excluded from our free shipping offer may be on 48+ hour courier services due to logistical issues beyond our control. Small items are sent by Royal Mail 1st Class post untracked. These items are usually delivered within 24 hours, but this can vary (anywhere up to 10 working days), and is unfortunately beyond our control.
